Sakai Takayuki White #2 Kurouchi

Made exclusively for Chubo by Sakai Takayuki, this line is forged by renowned blacksmith Togashi-san.  They are crafted in the kasumi method of joining a soft iron jacket with carbon steel core.  The blades go through additional tempering, cooling and hammering steps to ensure maximum sharpness and blade strength. These knives are forged from a Yasuki White #2 Steel with edges created completely by hand and sharpened on a combination of wheels and sharpening stones. The blade is left unpolished in the kurouchi style, which gives the knife a beautiful rustic, black finish. Octagonal-shaped yew handles and water buffalo bolsters are easy to grip and comfortable in the hand, even through long hours of use.
